AdDuplex reveals four unannounced phones in latest Windows Phone stats
Four new Lumia phones close to launch, but no flagships
New Windows Phone device statistics have been published by cross-promotional Windows Phone ad network AdDuplex.
The first five most popular models worldwide are now low-end devices (Lumia 520, 630, 625, 530, 635), while the former flagship Nokia Lumia 920 has lost one place for position №6.
High sales in the last two months have pushed Microsoft’s Lumia 535 to the top 10 for the first time with 3.1%. Other relatively new models like Lumia 930, 830, 730 and 735 are still now showing up on the graph, which means they all have shares below 3%.
Microsoft is an absolute dominant in the market having a 96% installed base. All small new manufacturers (like BLU, Prestigio, Yezz, and others) have increased their combined share from 0.26% to 0.35%.
Windows Phone 8.1 is now on 67.7% of all phones, while 8.0 is on 21.3%. Windows 10 Technical Preview is now running on 0.1% of the devices, which is a decent number.
Four unannounced models have been spotted in the logs which is an indication that they could be released very soon, possibly at the Mobile World Congress:
- 4-inch with a screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels
- 5-inch HD (720p), PureView 8.7MP, 8 GB internal storage, 1GB RAM – this model could launch as Lumia 640
- 7-inch HD (720p), PureView 14MP, 5MP front, possible successor to the Lumia 1320 – Lumia 1040, but it could launch with different numbering
- 5-inch HD (720p), a different variant of the Lumia 640 with Digital TV tuner for Brazil
Microsoft may be announcing all these models in Barcelona next week and new evidence points to AT&T offering both Lumia 640 and 1340 this spring.
